The host is installed with kernel on RHEL 6, or 7 and is prone to a privilege escalation vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which fails to properly handle IRET faults in processing NMIs that occurred during userspace execution. Successful exploitation could allow attackers to gain privileges.
